As COVID-19 and the social unrest of 2020 have demonstrated, business and society are dynamic – and ESG reporting needs to rapidly evolve to continue to meet the needs of business and stakeholders who make decisions in this era of constant change. PSEG has delivered best-in-class environmental reporting for years and today’s report reflects PSEG’s continued disclosures to meet the needs of stakeholders.
The report presents not only the data and details, but also PSEG’s approach to disclosure and its continued commitment to relevant, accessible and detailed ESG information. This report is part of PSEG’s strong legacy of reporting and metrics. Going forward, these details will be incorporated into PSEG’s annual climate and sustainability report.
“The impacts of our changing climate pose risks to our environment, our communities, our economy and our business. We’re pleased to offer the first-ever PSEG ESG Performance Report as a centralized source of data – available to anyone who wants to better understand our business strategy and evaluate our business’ impact. Our objective is to simplify and expedite the flow of information and to continuously improve our disclosure process to be more useful and transparent, which can be especially helpful to our diverse stakeholders who navigate the evolving landscape of ESG metrics.”
“From Wall Street to Main Street, PSEG’s stakeholders are increasingly focused on the role that environmental, social and governance issues play in our business agenda,” PSEG Senior Vice President for Corporate Citizenship Rick Thigpen said. “Disclosing ESG data helps stakeholders better understand how PSEG is achieving long-term growth by meeting the energy needs of highly diverse communities today and helping them make the transition to a clean energy future.”
“The combined impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and steps taken to address social equity helped to make 2020 a unique year,” PSEG Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief Diversity Officer Sheila Rostiac said. “The PSEG ESG Performance Report aims to capture and share a fuller picture of what we’ve accomplished as a company. As a best-in-class employer, PSEG is stepping up support for employees, increasing our focus on DEI, increasing transparency in workforce reporting, and driving culture change for an inclusive workplace where all employees can thrive.”
